Suspect package at Mangilao prison triggers investigation

Posted: Updated:

An internal affairs investigation is now underway at the Department of Corrections. Early today, around 3am, prison leaders say a suspicious package was found in the buffer zone area of the Mangilao compound.

Corrections officers came up on the item finding a cell phone and a sandwich bag that had various SIM cards and chewing tobacco inside.

Investigators are now looking into how it got there.

Also, DepCor officials confirm a separate investigation is underway after a section of the inner fence at the prison had apparently been pulled and damaged Friday night.

This is the second incident where a fence was damaged in the last month.
